Kris Gethin's 12 Week Body Transformation: Day 7 (July 27, 2014)


Welcome! It has been a few months since my last update and I'm excited about getting back on track during the next 12 weeks. In this post, I want to provide my current body measurements and photos. This way, as we progress through the transformation, we all will have a way to compare my progress. Shall we begin?

Body Measurements  

Weight: 215.8 lbs (-8.2 lbs)
Body Fat: 19% (guesstimating)
Waist: 38.5" (no change)  
Neck: 15.5" (+0.25")
Chest: 40" (-1")
Hips: 42" (+0.25)
Thigh: 24.5" (-0.50")
Calves: 17" (-0.50")
Biceps: 16" (-0.25")
Shoulders: 48.5" (-1")
Stomach: 39.5" (-1.25")
Upper Stomach: 35.5" (+0.25")
Body Fat Mass: 41 lbs
Lean Body Mass: 175 lbs
Target Weight (6% Body Fat): 185 lbs

In reviewing the numbers, the most notable areas of change between December 10, 2013 and today appears to be with my body weight, stomach, shoulders, and chest. While almost all body parts have reduced in size, I find it interesting to see where the fat (and I'm sure some muscle) are greatly being reduced. Watching a reduction from my stomach, which is a huge problem area, is a welcomed sight.

Another change worth discussing is the one related to my body fat percentage. In the past, I used a fat caliper to measure percentages. I believe that I have been using the tool incorrectly, whereby giving inaccurate data. So, for the time being, I am simply going to use a visual comparison (as provided by Bodybuilding.com).

Photo Gallery  

...
Instead of trying to post body transformation pictures individually on the page, I am going to use Google's Picasa Web to share images. Assume that the smaller and tighter I get, the more recent the photo. Cool?

As I compare the most recent pictures, taken this morning, to the ones taken back in December 2013, I notice very few changes. I am not surprised since I took some time off between transformations. Thankfully, I didn't lose too many gains during my time away. In the coming weeks, I'm looking forward to a continued reduction in my stomach area along with more muscle definition.

Closing Thoughts

To my friends and family who tell me that I'm "skinny enough," hopefully you see where I am trying to attack the fat. While wearing clothes, I probably look fine, but when I remove all masks, you can see the truth. I have some work to do.

My most immediate goals are to reduce fat, show some well-defined muscles, and then eventually put some mass back on these bones. It is definitely a process, but one I am excited to adopt.

For those who want to follow along with my daily workouts and measurements, I am using BodySpace, a community over on bodybuilding.com. Follow this link to see my profile. Feel free to send me a friend request if you want.

As far as eating and supplements, I am doing pretty much the same thing as before, with the exception of my vitapak. Instead of GNC's Mega Men Sport Vitapak, I am now using GNC's GenetixHD Elite Physique Vitapak. I may do a review on the new stack once I've had a chance to use it for a while.

Should you have any questions or want to talk about the transformation thus far, please leave me a comment in the section below.

Until next time...
